UMBC diminutive guard Darnell Rogers entered the transfer portal on Monday, ESPN reported.

The 5-foot-2 Rogers is believed to be the shortest player in Division I history. He started all 20 games this season for the Retrievers and averaged 9.8 points, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals.

UMBC's season ended Saturday night when it lost 79-77 to UMass Lowell in the semifinals of the American East tournament.

Rogers shot 40 percent from 3-point range this season.

Rogers played in just seven games last season due to a hamstring injury and other ailments.

He played his freshman campaign at Florida Gulf Coast in 2017-18 and averaged 0.9 points in 20 games. He played the next season for New Mexico Junior College in Hobbs, N.M., -- averaging 14 points -- before transferring to play for the Retrievers.
